Graduate Students of Color (GSOC-KU)

Graduate Students of Color at KU (GSOC-KU) was established in 2012. Its purpose is to provide a council at KU for graduate and professional students, and faculty of color to network with, support, and offer academic and professional encouragement to its members. GSOC-KU is open to all graduate and professional students who wish to support or be supported, collaborate, or serve as allies. GSOC-KU wants to connect new students with resources on campus, provide mentors, provide an outlet for students to meet in a social setting, track milestones in the degree process, and offer the ability to share research both formally and informally.
